Educational needs and expected outcome
In the Endovascular Era is important that surgeons do not lose their familiarity with the surgical skill indispensable for dealing with complications that may arise during endovascular treatment, or for confronting hybrid procedures. The participants would benefit from the experience of expert tuition in aortic surgery in a very interactive and stimulating educational context.
This specific vascular course aims at improving knowledge of anatomical access to the thoracic and abdominal aorta and its branches including anatomic laparotomic and laparoscopic dissections and practice on fresh cadavers, with the contribution of experts in this field of Vascular Surgery.
The course is open to Vascular and General Surgeons from around the world who have successfully completed their surgical training or are at an advanced level of training.
The official language is English.

Greetings 17.30 – 18.00
During the course, the participants will be led through video sessions, commented directly by the operators, in order to improve the understanding of the most common surgical and endovascular techniques used worldwide in vascular surgery.
Moreover, the partecipants will have the possibility to replicate the same endovascular and surgical techniques, learned during the video sessions, directly on cadaver models under the supervision of our tutors, improving the skills also among an endovascular simulator which will be at the disposal of the attendees during the course.
